A strong argument can be made that the health care field is one of the most information-intensive sectors in the U.S. economy and avoidance of the rapid advances in information technology is no longer an option. Consequently, the study of health care information technology and systems has become central to health care delivery effectiveness. This course covers the modern application of information technology that is critical to supporting the vision and operational knowledge of the health care leaders in managing the health care organization. Heath care decision-makers have to meet head-on the dynamic challenges of health care delivery quality, cost, access, and regulatory control. Additionally, this course integrates the Healthcare Information System as integral to the Quality Assurance Tracking Programs including measurement of systems inputs, processes, and outputs with special emphasis on systems outcomes research and organizational accountability to its various stakeholders, not the least of which are government regulators.

TOP REVIEWS FROM HEALTH CARE IT: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES
Very informative and relevant modules, helped me to understand Health Care IT challenges and opportunities are similar in nature to quiet an extent.
This course was very informative. I would of liked more mini quizzes, and questions for the first week were a little weird, but overall good teachers with a good message,
It would have been more interesting if current health care IT, would have been shown, as an examples from various geographical locations, across all continents.
Awesome! Exactly a course that I'm looking for! Can't be more relevant to my career which is data analytics in healthcare
